Provenance Dorothy Clement was the donor's cousin. She moved to Florida from Ohio in the mid to late 1940s. Trained as a beautician, she eventually obtained work in a beauty salon owned by Betty Caldwell. The salon was located on the south side of Pine Street between Orange Magnolia Avenues behind the 5&10.

Dorothy and her co-workers decided to dress in older style dresses for Orlando's Centennial Celebration in 1957. She chose to dress as a pioneer woman and made her own dress.
